True to it’s name of a teaser, we don’t get much information plot-wise from the trailer. Before we catch sight of John Boyega‘s character fulled suited up, the trailer serves more as a recruitment video for a global fighting force.
The description of the video urges us join the Mark VI Jaeger Program and visit GOJAEGER.COM “to discover if you have what it takes to join the biggest heroes ever to walk the Earth.” When you go to the site, one of the pages gives a rough timeline of the Jaeger Program since the first Kaiju attacked San Francisco on August 10th, 2013. According to the timeline provided, Uprising takes place 10 years after the events of Pacific Rim and the Battle of the Breach.
Cast members returning to Pacific Rim: Uprising include Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, and Charlie Day. The movie also stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, and Adria Arjona. Steven S. DeKnight is the director.
There is no official release date announced yet, but the film will be coming out sometime in 2018.
